In the trauma room and in the ICU I was in constant reiki prayer. I kept my hands on my daughter as much as I possibly could. There were times (as I knew she knew it was me) that she would take my hand and place it where she needed it on her body. Although her hair was still caked in dried blood I could still place my hands where reiki directed me to go, on and near her skull and face. I would lie in her bed as best I could to allow reiki to come from my every pore to offer to her. She would always calm down when I could have my hands on her heart and my son (trained to reiki 2) was doing reiki on the rest of her.
Her pain levels were off the chart, yet the docs couldn't get a pain med to relieve her pain so she could sleep. She was getting psychotic from lack of sleep. At some point her docs were able to finally give her a sleeping pill, and she slept for four hours. Sleep was a turning point.
As the hours went into days my family and I tag-teamed reiki treatments and sleeping with her. I stayed mostly focused on her heart and head with my hands. A team of reiki people were providing distant reiki 24/7 and 8 churches from around the country shared prayers and reiki as well. The swelling in her face and brain went down dramatically in the first 24 hours. She was discharged six days later. She had a very sore tail bone, but thankfully, she could walk.
We had her in the living room in a bed with a close by bathroom. Her relief at this stage was sitting in the hot shower, reiki, pain meds and sleep. Finally she could sleep. As I offered reiki to her in bed I could feel the trauma start to release from her neck, spine, and shoulders. In the accident she had been thrown around like a rag doll in the car even though her belt was on.
By some miracle (this whole event is a miracle) the gentleman who saved her was able to find us and ask how she was. We asked if he'd like to visit our daughter, and he said he'd love to. To see my daughter smile politely (still no memory of the accident) and meet this sweet man was something we will never forget. We exchanged addresses and promises to stay in touch.
Reiki saved my sanity and it was a HUGE part in the rapid pace of my daughter’s recovery.
It's been only a little over 8 weeks, and you'd never know the extent of my daughter’s injuries by looking at her. There were no cuts or scars. Her face has healed and her CAT scans are all clear.
She was truly given a second chance to live. I was able to exhale and continue my own self reiki and begin to heal my own PTSD from all this. Reiki continues to help clear and clean our thoughts and memories.
There are Reiki miracles every day.
